US firm launches high-tech packing film
Washington, June 6, 2013
US-based technology firm Cortec Corporation has launched an advanced version of high technology films and bags, now containing even higher content of recycled resin that provide top quality multimetal corrosion protection.
As part of Cortec's green concept, Cortec laboratories formulated environmentally improved version of VpCI 126 films manufactured using state of the art reprocessing line. The recycled content includes internal scrap which makes the whole regranulation process energy efficient. It greatly reduces waste, while the consistent quality of VpCI126 films and bags remains.
This new eco concept of films and bags containing high recycled content enables rational use of resources and energy savings while the product still maintains excellent chemical, mechanical and corrosion inhibiting properties.
VpCI126 Blue combines the latest film technology with the most effective corrosion protection for all of the metal products. Sealing a product in this film protects metal parts from all types of corrosion including rust, tarnish, stains, white rust and oxidation for up to five years, a statement said.
It replaces hazardous conventional rust preventatives such as oils and desiccants. By using VpCI126 Blue the customer gains safe and economical solution considering that VpCI®126 Blue also eliminates all the degreasing or coating removal required in the past, the statement said.
The product can be used immediately; it does not contain free amines, phosphates or halogen-based materials and is non-toxic.
Metal parts packaged in VpCI126 Blue receive continuous protection against salt, excessive humidity, condensation, moisture, aggressive industrial atmospheres and dissimilar metal corrosion. The VpCIs vaporize and condense to metal surfaces in the enclosed package, reaching every area of the part, even hard-to-reach interior surfaces. This allows complete product protection during storage as well as during domestic and overseas shipments.
Films and bags made from recycled polyethylene have low CO2 footprint because of savings in energy, raw materials and transportation costs.
"Bags made from true PCR (Post Consumer Recyclate) have generally the smallest environmental impact profiles and can be considered the most eco-friendly materials for waste bags,” said a study of plastic waste bags in Europe by IFEU.
VpCI126 Blue received approval by the Federal Drug Administration for indirect food contact for use on food containers and food handling equipment and approval from a leading institute regarding the recycling and disposal of packaging materials containing Cortec proprietary chemistry. – TradeArabia News Service
